Isley Brothers Isley Brothers 60th Anniversary tour. Ronald and Ernie Isley have embarked on their 60th anniversary tour. https://youtu.be/2PWVBeJWu1s 
Of course, while Jimi Hendrix played with the Isleys, and lived at their home and knew the two, he only played with Ronald. Ernie didn’t join his brothers until 1966.
The year was 1964. Jimi Hendrix was scuffling around in Greenwich Village when Kelly Isley, in search of a guitar player for the Isley Brothers’ backup band, found him there in early 1964. At the time Hendrix was out of work and his guitar was in a pawn shop. Kelly got the instrument out of hock and bought Hendrix a set of strings for it. As soon as Hendrix began playing, Kelly hired him and invited him to a rehearsal the next day at their mother’s house in Englewood. When the Hendrix said he had no way of getting there, Kelly arranged for him to live in his mother's back room. Hendrix ended up doing two stints with the Isley Brothers, who at the time were made up of Kelly, Rudolph and lead singer Ronald Isley, at that time were best known for the hits "Shout" and "Twist and Shout." Hendrix toured as a member of the group's backup band during the first half of 1964, then left to join Little Richard's band but returned to the Isleys for a period in 1965.
At the time he was living with the Isleys, Ernie was the younger brother more interested in baseball than music and was often in the backyard playing with Marvin while their older brothers and their band were practicing inside. In an interview in the San Francisco Chronicle, Ernie recalls, "He was quiet," he says of Hendrix. "He minded his own business. He just practiced that guitar all the time. I really didn't understand that because he was already so good. It was like his guitar didn't have any wrong notes on it. "He'd be rehearsing a lot of things in the house without an amp. We'd see him going behind his back or through his legs or playing guitar and drinking a glass of orange juice at the same time."
It wasn’t until Hendrix had left the Isleys before Ernie became interested in music taking up the drums in 1965, and joining the Isleys the next year. Ernie has participated in the Jimi Hendrix Tribute Tours, and both enjoy talking about the Hendrix days. As part of their 60th anniversary tour, they are offering “meet and greet” packages.
Tour dates:
November 8 – Saban Theatre, Beverly Hills, Califronia
Novmeber 9 – Paramount Theatre, Oakland, California
December 7 – Salem Civic Center, Salem, Virginia
December 17 – Walt Disney Theatre, Orlando, Florida
December 19 – Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg, Florida
December 20 – Kravis Center, West Palm Beach, Florida
December 22 – Time Union PAC Center, Jacksonville, Floriday
January 18, 2020 – Star of the Desert Arena, Primm, Nevada

Jimi Hendrix und Amy Winehouse in Acryl Kieler Nachrichten

December 5-8, 2019 Stanley Jordan plays Jimi Hendrix.
Jordan plays Jimi HendrixWorld-renowned guitarist Stanley Jordan has developed a new live show called "Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi." This is a tribute show, but it's not pure imitation. Instead Stanley builds on Jimi's legacy in a myriad of creative way. As Stanley explains it, "This is my fantasy Jimi Hendrix concert if Jimi were still alive and playing today. By re-imagining his music and channeling his persona I try to bring that fantasy to life." Here’s the press release from Jordan -
World-renowned guitarist Stanley Jordan has developed a new live show called “Stanley Plays Jimi.” This is a tribute show, but it’s not pure imitation. Instead Stanley builds on Jimi’s legacy in a creative way. As Stanley explains it, “This is my fantasy Jimi Hendrix concert if Jimi were still alive and playing today. By re-imagining his music and channeling his persona I try to bring that fantasy to life.” It may be surprising that Stanley Jordan would take on a project like this. After all, Stanley is already a well-known guitarist with a signature style, four Grammy nominations, and a host of TV appearances over a long career But Stanley explains, “I feel a strong connection to Jimi Hendrix because he was the first guitarist I emulated as a child. Out of love for Jimi and his music I feel a strong desire to try to keep his legacy alive.” It may also be surprising that a rock legend like Hendrix would get so much love from a jazz legend like Jordan. Stanley’s 1985 album, which included his interpretation of “Angel”, Magic Touch was #1 on Billboard’s jazz chart for 51 weeks (Jordan also covered “Drifting” on his 1994 album Bolero). But again, hearing it from Stanley, “I actually played rock and blues before I played jazz. In fact, Jimi’s constant searching for new sounds inspired me to move toward jazz in the first place.”
Another important aspect is the embodiment of Jimi’s persona. Stanley actually steps onto the stage as Jimi Hendrix so there is a theatrical element to the show. But this is not a comedic caricature nor is it a theatrical play – it’s a concert. It’s a concert built upon a sincere and heartfelt effort to recreate the jaw-dropping experience of witnessing Jimi Hendrix live while at the same time bringing Jimi’s legacy up to date in a believable way. Wow! Tall order to fill–no? That’s why you need a world-class artist of Stanley Jordan’s caliber to pull it off. This extra touch of portraying the Hendrix of today rather than yesterday keeps the show creative and fresh for both Stanley and the audience and it gives Stanley’s fans a new insight into Stanley’s own evolution. It also makes the show more authentic in a certain sense, because a real Hendrix concert would have surprises and unexpected turns. “Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi” tries to re-create both the energy and the creativity of the real thing. “This would be a challenging endeavor for anyone,” Stanley explains. “For sure you can put on an impressive show with just 2 or 3 of his techniques. But I’m trying my best to cover as much of his work as possible while at the same time trying to build on it, which I think is really the heart and soul of this project. The truth is, no one really knows what Jimi would be doing today. But we do know he would have kept evolving. This gives me some creative leeway and it lets my own identity come through because we’re viewing Hendrix thru my lens. But it’s also challenging for me because I can’t do just anything; It has to make sense and to come across as something Jimi might have actually done.” One way Stanley builds on Jimi’s legacy is by expanding on some of the jazz elements that Jimi was evidently reaching for toward the end of his life. Stanley says, “We know that he jammed with Rasaan Roland Kirk and Larry Young, and plans were underway to collaborate with Miles Davis and Gil Evans. You can hear him reaching and expanding his vocabulary on albums like Nine To The Universe, which was very influential to me as a youngster. And some of his compositions have a kind of jazzy shuffle, such as ‘Up from the Skies’ and ‘Belly Button Window.’ I try to expand on that.” Stanley also builds on Jimi’s work by incorporating touch, or two-hand tapping techniques. Many people associate that more with Van Halen than with Hendrix but Stanley says, “I actually got the idea from Jimi Hendrix. I saw him do it with just his left hand, but that’s all I needed to see. I just added the right hand, which was an obvious extension.” And extend it he did. Today Stanley Jordan is considered by many to be the World’s best tapper, having developed it into a rich pianistic style.
Jimi Hendrix was no stranger to electronics and Stanley builds on that as well, saying, “Of course I use feedback and effects just as Jimi did. But I avoid programmed sequencers and prerecorded tracks because there just isn’t enough evidence that Jimi would have gone that route. And the real genius of what he did consisted in making himself part of the circuit rather than externalizing it. For Jimi, electronics were not an end in themselves but a means to an end–an extension of the instrument and a channel of his spirit.” Stanley also adds a few original compositions to the setlist–fantasy songs that could have been written by Jimi today, just to fill out the repertoire and to give shape to some of the new concepts Jimi was developing. Remember–this is the Hendrix of today, not yesterday. In terms of look and style, Stanley stays mostly faithful to Jimi’s traditional style. Of course we know Jimi could have evolved significantly in his clothing style by now but Stanley doesn’t speculate much in that area, explaining, “The truth is, in this show I’m both a musician and an actor, and I want my character to be believable. I feel that the best way to do that is to be fairly faithful to the Jimi Hendrix that we all know.” “Stanley Plays Jimi” is a new project but it’s based on an old idea. Stanley says, “Back in 1970 at the age of 11 I was saddened to hear of Jimi’s passing. I decided there and then to try to continue his legacy, so I took up guitar. Of course my main goal was to be an original artist in my own right, but the concept of a Hendrix tribute has been in my mind pretty much from the start. Now, in the year of the 50th anniversary of Jimi’s historic Woodstock performance the time feels right to bring this idea to fruition.”
Performances are December 5 – Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, Pennsylvania; December 7 – Emerline Theatre, Mamaroneck, New York; and December 8 – The Crossroads, Garwood, New Jersey.
He then takes the show to Shainghai, China for a New Year’s Eve performance, returning to continue his U.S. tour on the west coast dates January 31 – Tower Theater, Fresno, California and February 3 – Kuumbwa, Santa Cruz, California.

Band of Gypsys Fuzz by Jim DunlopThe Band of Gypsys Fuzz by Jim Dunlop

The Band of Gypsys Fuzz is based on a mysteriously aggressive and biting Fuzz Face Distortion that Jimi Hendrix used, faithfully recreated by the MXR design team. Fifty years ago, Jimi Hendrix and his newly christened Band of Gypsys closed out the historic Woodstock Festival with an epic two-hour set that included his famous psychedelic rendition of the national anthem. The Authentic Hendrix ’69 Psych Series commemorates that momentous event, featuring the iconic stompbox effects used by Jimi Hendrix in a more pedalboard-friendly form than ever—MXR mini housings, emblazoned with super trippy artwork from award-winning UK-based design crüe Ilovedust.

Jimi Hendrix -Alle Songs - Neues Buch: Jimi Hendrix -Alle Songs - Die Geschichten hinter den Tracks – ( erhältlich ab Okt.2019 )
Teufelsgitarrist

Niccolò Paganini nannte man den Teufelsgeiger. 150 Jahre nach ihm betrat ein anderer Beelzebub die musikalische Bühne, der spielte genauso satanisch und brillant, nur dass sein Instrument die Gitarre war. Starb er auch früh, er ist wie Paganini unsterblich: Jimi Hendrix
„Jimi Hendrix – Alle Songs“: Mit diesem wuchtigen Buch setzt der Delius Klasing Verlag die populäre Reihe über die Giganten der Rockmusik fort, gemäß dem bewährten Rezept: Alle Songs und die Geschichten hinter den Tracks. Diesmal haben Jean-Michel Guesdon und Philippe Margotin also Jimi Hendrix im Visier, Gitarrist, Komponist, Sänger mit afrikanischen und indianischen Wurzeln, gestorben mit nur 27 Jahren. Und der vielleicht größte Gitarrist der Rockgeschichte. Gäbe es da nur die Zerfetzung des Sternenbanners mit musikalischen Mitteln beim Woodstock-Festival aus Empörung über den Vietnam-Krieg, das hätte genügt, um Jimi Hendrix unsterblich werden zu lassen. Aber sein Vermächtnis ist weitaus größer, so vielgestaltig und umfangreich, dass es hier an die 600 pralle Seiten füllt, Register inklusive.

Dieser Band zeichnet mit einer vortrefflichen Fülle an Bildern, Texten und Infos über seine Studioaufnahmen und Konzerttourneen die Geschichte dieser Ausnahmefigur nach, von den Anfängen der Kindheit bis zum absurden Drogentod, kurz nach seinem letzten Auftritt auf Fehmarn. Alle Schlüsselfiguren dieser Karriere, von den Isley Brothers bis zur Jimi Hendrix Experience, dazu die Vorbilder (Chuck Berry, Little Richard) und die Weggefährten (Beatles, Rolling Stones) sind hier noch einmal bildhaft präsent und die Gefährtinnen natürlich auch.
Vor allem sind hier alle Platten aufgelistet, mit den Daten und Fakten zu den Aufnahmen im Studio oder live, samt Mit-Musikern, Aufnahmeteam sowie den Geschichten dahinter und drum herum. Kleine Schnipsel über die Seiten verstreut enthüllen Unbekanntes und Un-erhörtes. Auch die „Zeit danach“ ist dokumentiert. Gigantisch: dieser Jimi, dieses Buch.

HENDRIX DIE ILLUSTRIERTE BIOGRAFIEGillian G. Gaar HENDRIX DIE ILLUSTRIERTE BIOGRAFIE
Übersetzung: Andreas Schiffmann Hardcover mit Samtbeflockung und Neon-Sonderfarben, 27,6 x 23,5 cm, 224 Seiten. Durchgehend farbig bebildert ISBN 978-3-85445-677-3 Erscheint im November 2019

Jimi Hendrix stand nur vier Jahre im Fokus der Öffentlichkeit, doch beweist beinahe 50 Jahre nach seinem tragischen Tod eine verblüffende Langlebigkeit. Unzählige Wiederveröffentlichungen, Poster, T-Shirts und vor allem seine Musik, die immer noch im Radio und Fernsehen zu hören ist, verdeutlichen seine über Jahrzehnte hinweg gleichbleibende Strahlkraft. Als Ikone der Flower-Power-Generation wird sein Name nur mit Superlativen in Zusammenhang gebracht. „Jahrhundertgenie“, „Revolutionär der E-Gitarre“, „genialer Komponist“ oder „der Ikarus des 20. Jahrhunderts“ sind nur einige der Beschreibungen, mit denen das Phänomen Hendrix charakterisiert.

Gillian G. Gaar beleuchtet die Karriere des Ausnahmemusikers in einem Prachtband mit einem Gimmick-Cover mit Samtbezug. Sie erzählt von seiner schweren Jugend, der Zeit beim Militär und den ersten musikalischen Gehversuchen. Dann der Urknall der modernen Rockgeschichte! Hendrix wird entdeckt, in London gefördert und aufgebaut und veröffentlicht mit „Hey Joe“ und „Purple Haze“ alles überragende Meilensteine. Er setzt seine Gitarre beim Monterey Pop Festival 1967 in Brand, wird beim legendären Woodstock-Festival gefeiert und spielt Studioalben ein, die andere Werke damals zeitgenössischer Musiker in den Schatten stellen. Sein tragischer Tod am 18. September 1970 mit nur 27 Jahren setzt einen jähen Schlussstrich unter eine kometenhafte Karriere. Jimi Hendrix – Die illustrierte Biografie entfaltet ihre Wirkung durch die vorzügliche Komposition von Bild und Wort. Ikonenhafte Fotos, Cover- und Plakat-Abbildungen, sowie farbenfrohe Aufnahmen der Hippie-Ära ergeben im Zusammenspiel mit einem niveauvollen und akribisch recherchierten Text ein atemberaubendes und plastisches Abbild einer einzigartigen Ära. Hier wird die Musik lebendig. Neben einer Auflistung seiner Alben bieten eine ausgewählte Liste der Konzerte und Gastauftritte zusätzliche Hintergrundinformationen.

Gillian G. Gaar schrieb für verschiedene Musikmagazine wie Mojo, Rolling Stone und Goldmine, bevor sie sich auf Musikbiografien von unter anderem Nirvana, Green Day oder den Red Hot Chili Peppers konzentrierte. Bei Hannibal sind von ihr bereits The Doors – Die illustrierte Biografie und Elvis – Die Legende erschienen. Gaar lebt in Seattle.
